Hands on Children’s Museum

by Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Inc. on November 8, 2010

The ground-breaking ceremony for the new Hands On Children’s Museum is being held on November 17, 2010, at 12:00 p.m. The site is located between Jefferson Street and Marine Drive just north of State Avenue. This new facility will be the centerpiece of a revitalization project all along East Bay. It will lead the biggest downtown transformation since the Farmer’s Market was built in the 1990s.

The new facility includes an expanded version of some of the Museum’s favorite exhibits along with a new cooking studio, inventor’s studio, and a new gallery focused on the Wild Woods. The northwest’s relationship to water will be a big theme at the new museum and will tie in with the LOTT reclaimed water interpretive center next door. Designs for the new Outdoor Learning Center are especially exciting. The 30,000 square foot outdoor space will include interactive water features, a wetland, driftwood forts, children’s garden, forest look-out towers and many other exciting additions.
